    Are there any cable boxes that support serial cable or is it just satellite's?

    Some of the older Motorola cable boxes did. Depends highly on your provider - a lot of them didn't enable it.

    The Comcast Motorola boxes used to be enable in New England. I have no idea if they still are.

    Only some of the Motorola/GI/Jerrold 2000/2500 series had a serial port which the TiVo supports. And yes, the provider has to choose to enable that for it to work with TiVo.
